    February 2, 2012 5:27 am I really have no idea what the fuss is about in regards to whether DC should be doing this or not. Two points that have been made before resonate. Firstly, did Grant Morrison invent Superman? No. Did Mark Waid come up with the idea for Daredevil? No. Are the X-Men a Jason Aaron creation? No. Hell, did Alan Moore come up with the idea for Swamp Thing? No. Comic books are all about writers and artist working with other peoples ideas and being creative and coming up with something new. In a way that's what makes comics different to other forms of written media. DC is doing with Watchmen what it has been doing for decades with Batman and Superman. The second point is Alan Moore bring in the argument that there were no prequels/sequels to 'Moby Dick'. That's correct Alan. Though there are sequels (kind of) to Dracula and Jekyll and Hyde though because you used someone else's characters in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. How is this any different in an artistic sense to what DC are doing? Some might argue that copy write comes into the argument somewhere but all of Alan's arguments seem to be coming from an artistic stand point. As we say over here... Storm in a teacup. Speaking of which, who takes sugar?

    February 1, 2012 9:26 am There's a lot of talk about this being a 'cash-in'. I think what a lot of people forget is that, like movie studios, comic book publishers like Marvel and DC are in the business of making money. They're not some kind of benevolent, humanitarian organisation creating art for the sake of posterity. These will sell in their thousands. They will make DC a lot of money. If we're lucky it will mean that some less popular, though excellent books will continue (at least until the next cull). On the plus side they seem to have put together a relatively strong team on some of the books. People need to be a little less 'precious' about things. If you don't want to acknowledge these books exist... Don't read 'em! Oh and I like Watchmen. I like Alan Moore's work. I live in the same town as him. I even buy my books in the same comic store as him. ... Though if I buy these I may have to time it right!
